The Ultimate Babymoon Destination: Villa del Palmar

With our first child on the way in a few months, my wife (easily) convinced me to pack our bags for one last vacation with just the two of us. Soon enough it’ll be all about diapers and car seats, but for now, we wanted tropical and decided that Cabo San Lucas was the perfect quick escape to paradise. Now well into my 30’s, it’s clear that what I’m looking for in a Mexico beach vacation getaway has matured right along with me. I still want the fun and sun, but I can safely leave the late night whistle blowing bartenders and crash-pad hotel experiences to those more equipped to handle...

Land at The Bird Rock Hotel

Nestled in the heart of San Juan Island’s downtown is the Friday’s Historic Inn building. That’s where the Bird Rock Hotel lives, perfectly situated near the market and across the way from the ferry terminal that takes you to and from the mainland. It’s in the center of the walkable harbor district, close to the restaurants, shops and attractions.

We found the Bird Rock Hotel because it’s...

Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali

The small river rushes 10 feet below me as I traverse a very narrow bamboo bridge at the bottom of the canyon floor. Looking up, both of the steep mountain hillsides are thick with overgrown vines and ancient banyan trees. In the distance down the valley I can just make out a single monkey as he moves along the canopy, reminding me that I really am in the jungle. Ahead, a small path leads away from the water and begins ascending rapidly to the Hindu temple far above me. Along the way I pass ancient stone sculptures of monks and warriors. I can’t help but laugh that what might as well be...
